    I have read mixed comments about Unity having a hard cap of only being able to show 25 Ads per day.

    Can people chime in and confirm this once and for all? Why in the world is the cap set at 25? Unity thinks the odds any user will reach more than 25 Ads per day is so low?

    Also, what workarounds can I do if I want the user to watch an Ad but has reached their daily limit? Should I implement another Ad program? Google's Admob?


    I think I sadly came across this issue, because I never enabled Test Mode for Ads in Unity, and I kept running real time Ads during testing. I eventually ran out and my game got stuck waiting for the Advertisement.IsReady to turn true. I spent hours trying to figure out if I had messed up my Advertisement code, but I am starting to think I just reached the daily Ad cap, based on what I have been reading online. The next 24 hours should reveal this.

    The limit of ~25 ads per day is correct, and the reason is to keep a balance of revenue vs. operational server costs; showing more than 25 ads per day per user is likely not bringing additional revenue for you as publisher. Remember our interest is to maximize the revenue in the network including publisher revenue, so it's there for a good reason.

    If you really want to show more ads, you can consider implementing a mediation partner SDK, which will allow you to show ads from different networks.

    Have you read https://blogs.unity3d.com/2015/04/15/a-designers-guide-to-using-video-ads/ ? Our experience is that making Ads a part of the gameplay, e.g. as rewarded ads, usually results in higher revenue, than just a large number of ads.

    Thanks for confirming and explaining.

    I think all is well now.

    My Ads are only generating once a player is eligible for a reward. Which could happen once every few minutes.

    I wish I had knew about the 25 daily limit, because I spent several hours last night trying to fix my code that wasn't broken. I just didn't know I had run out of Ads.

    Hey but the can player watch 25 ads all at once? Or is it over the course of the day?
